Let’s talk toddler lunches. We mamas at the Whole30 HMHB team feed our kids generally the same types of Whole30-style meals that we eat, but remixed or scaled back for little hands (and palates!). Today we are joining forces with Whole30 Approved RETHINK Water Kids to show you several real-life examples of toddler lunches. These were pulled from Steph’s #OttoEats and #LeoEats (side note: if you want to see what our in-house RD and Whole30 HMHB co-creator Steph Greunke feeds her kids, check out those hashtags) and can easily be eaten at home, on the go, or packed for preschool.

RETHINK Water Kids are flavored boxed water for kids. They’re the perfect size to throw into a lunchbox, diaper bag, or backpack (just like a traditional juice box), but they contain water that’s simply flavored with natural flavors. Our little ones get the benefit of having a fun and yummy beverage, without all of the added other stuff (sugar, sweeteners, and artificial ingredients).
We asked our in-house recipe developer and photographer Sarah Steffens to shoot a few of our favorite toddler lunch combos, paired with various RETHINK water flavors. Scroll down to see!
But first, a bit about RETHINK Water…
Why RETHINK Water?
From the RETHINK team: We’re rethinking the way water is packaged and sold, to be friendlier to our planet while still convenient for our busy lives. Our water is community sourced from local markets and put through a 7 step purification process. This allows for a smaller carbon footprint in transit. It maintains a perfect 7.5 pH without any chemicals or impurities. In short, it’s as fresh, clean, and pure a water you will find. Our apple and berry flavored kid’s water is USDA certified organic, and packaged in a kid-friendly, easily-recyclable, BPA-free juice box.
Toddler Friendly Lunches featuring RETHINK water
RETHINK Berry Water with rotisserie chicken, ants on a log (celery with almond butter and raisins), and banana with cinnamon.
RETHINK Apple Water with a Whole30 compliant sausage (like like Teton Waters Cooked Uncured Beef Thuringer Sausage or Applegate Farms uncured beef hotdogs), kiwi, avocado(with Everything Bagel spice mix), and grapes.
RETHINK Pure Water with hard-boiled egg with black pepper, carrots, mixed nuts (monitor for choking risk depending on age of your child), and green olives.
